Around the Blogs: Is Gore Electable? Are Strong Women Still Bitches? Are the Olympics Like a GOP Convention? And Where Did We Put Those Durn Commandments?

Surfin’, surfin’, surfin’ around the blogs:

==> Advice from God’s Wiki Bible, Exodus Chapter 20, currently reads: “And then God gave the rest of us some commandments and stuff. And they were pretty good, but we forgot to copy them down. Whoopsie, saith the Lord.”

===> The Rogue Jew reminds us that the biggest problem Republicans seem to have with Hillary Clinton is that she is a woman with independent ambition. RJ writes: “Hillary who by the way is exposing herself as the lying two faced politically motivated bitch that she trully is…”.

====> Tracking 2008 nails down the central weakness in Chris Cillizza’s critique of a Gore 2008 candidacy. It’s the same criticism of Gore that they pulled on Kerry: he’s consistently a wacko liberal, and yet is a flip-flopper! Well, both can’t be true. But that doesn’t mean that people can’t say both things. Will it work against Gore’s pretty transparent attempt to put himself on a presidential track?

=====> IMAO notes Bryant Gumbel’s complaint about an Olympics with “a paucity of blacks that makes the Winter Games look like a GOP convention.” Bryant Gumbel is clearly wrong. If the Winter Games were like a GOP convention, there would be a bunch of famous black people’s faces painted on the ice rinks, and a hired black choir, to make the Games look multicultural.

    What VP Cheney did in no way compares to what Ted Kennedy did or the deceitful ways the Clintons covered their tracks for all the years they were in the White House. It was a hunting accident. Cheney did’nt leave his friend to die like Kennedy did his female companion which he was having an adulterous affair with and lets not forget the line of bodies that the Clintons have left behind in their wake. No matter how you look at it, Cheney and Bush are more dignified and honest then Kennedy, Clinton, Clinton, and Kerry could ever dream of being.

    Kerry? Kerry? How’d you lump Kerry in there? That’s an interesting sneak-in there. ‘Splain, please!

    A2,

    “Spun out of control?” You mean like this?

    Whoever this Anonymous guy is, he’s a Bush sycophant. Yeah, Bush and Cheney are more dignified and honest – please. They’ve been lying (of course Anon. and his crowd won’t accept FACTS like the Downing St. memos, Libby and Pillar’s testimony about Iraq and Plame, and all the glowing promises Bush makes and then conveniently forgets or more usually changes his mind on when it regards domestic policy especially) since the day they took office in 2000 (actually before, if you count all his empty campaign promises). And all you need to look at is where we stand now, both domestically and in the world at large, compared to where we were when Clinton was in office and what he left Bush to work with. There once was a SURPLUS in our budget, practically everyone was working, and people felt good (at least there wasn’t an endless war). Sure Clinton wasn’t perfect, but his agenda was much better (except for GATT and globalization, but effing Perot was right about that and nobody was listening) for the general populace, as opposed to the corporate/wealthy/religious fanatics that Bush rewards daily. Our economy is supposedly doing wonderfully now (if you look at the stock market), but that only reflects the state of affairs for people with money and corporations, who are laying off and/or freezing wages for their workers. For regular citizens, even Rethugs who don’t make a ton of money, George Bush is the worst president this country ever had, they just refuse to believe the facts and the reality of the steadily worsening conditions in Amerika on his account. We can bail out the airlines, and give billion dollar gifts to the Big Oil, but we can’t help our own citizens get health care coverage, or help them rebuild after natural disasters. Whoever gets the presidency in 2008 will have one HUGE problem to tackle after another. He’s left a complete mess of the country, a broken government (is there still a Constitution?), and ordinary people in dire straits as far as real wages, security, opportunity, and our rights, access to health care, and all the “new” laws designed to keep people struggling (look at all the programs he’s cut funding for lately – and we still have 2 years to go with this clown).

    Bullshit, you and all the leftist lost. Count the votes…..Thankfully we have a good leader who isn’t distracted by every teen age skirt that makes it into the oval office area. Boy, what a breath of fresh air..someone with the courage to do something for America and the guts to stand up to all this media bashing.. Run hard George, you still have three years and you certainly are not tired yet….
